Executive Recruiters for Engineering

Your engineering recruitment agency

Research, Design, and Development

The Engineering field is composed of skilled professionals seeking to transform ideas into action. With the present-day focus on digital transformation, the resulting disruption is often driven by Engineering innovations. The latest recruiting buzzword for the Engineering world is “mechatronics”, and it refers to “the integration of mechanical engineering, robotics, electronics, and software.”

We are specialists in the recruitment of Engineering talent. We recognize that Engineering is the merger of creativity and professionalism. Almost everything we see around us was designed or developed by an Engineer.

Our recruiting research demonstrates that 4 out of 10 positions in the top-10-paying majors list are filled by qualified Engineers.

Lock’s expertise and experience with Engineers span more than 15 years. With our localized knowledge and international reach, we can assist both employers and candidates in evaluating and finalizing the search for the ideal Engineering career.

We work with a diverse set of engineering companies

The wide range of roles included in the multidisciplinary field of biomedical engineering can make it a challenge to find candidates with the right experience and skills. These professionals work in a variety of areas, from developing pharmaceuticals and medical devices to healthcare and biotech roles. Lock Search Group recruiters have the industry expertise to identify talent who is ideally suited to your job, both in terms of their specialty and as a match for your culture.
Civil engineering experts like urban planners, surveyors, and environmental engineers are key players in planning, designing, building, and maintaining the infrastructure that helps society function. Unfortunately, they can also be hard to come by, with a shortage of experienced civil engineers leading to fierce competition among employers who need their expertise. Partnering with Lock Search Group gives you access to a broad network of these professionals who have the technical knowledge, project management skills, and strong communication skills your role requires.
Computer engineering encompasses a variety of specializations, and this makes it tricky to find the right people for a particular role. Each aspect of this sector, from hardware design to software development, machine learning, or cybersecurity, requires a unique set of skills, and for many the demand has outpaced the supply of candidates available in the job market. Lock Search Group recruiters have the expertise to identify the unique requirements of the role, along with the connections and network to find candidates who match them.
Professionals with expertise in electrical design, power systems, hardware, automation, and other electrical engineering specialities are needed in a variety of industries, from consumer electronics to healthcare, construction, and telecommunications. This makes candidates with these skills highly sought-after, adding to the challenge of finding the right person for these opportunities. Partnering with Lock Search Group gives companies access to hidden talent beyond what they can find on job boards to fill their open roles faster.
The highly technical nature of mechanical engineering roles means employers often look for candidates with experience in a specific specialization, such as thermal systems, robotics, or the automotive industry. Even so, there are a range of industries who need this talent and are often competing for the same limited pool of professionals. Lock Search Group’s long history of successful placements in this sector gives us the edge on finding the right talent for any mechanical engineering role.
Nanotechnology is a multidisciplinary field, encompassing a variety of applications that span industries like electronics, material science, and healthcare. The engineers, chemists, and researchers who work in this space often focus on a niche like nanomedicine, nanomaterials, or nanofabrication. Simply identifying the right kind of nanotechnologist for your role can be a challenge for hiring managers who aren’t experts in the field. At Lock Search Group, we understand the terminology and specializations across the nanotechnology sector, as well as what these professionals look for in a role, making us well-equipped to help our clients hire the right people to drive their latest innovations.
Nuclear power is a highly regulated industry, putting extra demands on the professionals who work in this field. Not only do they need to have niche technical expertise in areas like nuclear physics and reactor design, they also need to be well-versed in the industry’s safety standards and compliance guidelines, while the sensitive nature of their work also often requires security clearances. Lock Search recruiters understand the complexities of hiring reactor engineers, material scientists, waste management professionals, and other nuclear engineering talent.
Robotics technology is employed across a wide range of industries, and its use is expanding. From mines and agricultural fields to manufacturing plants and warehouses, robotics have a presence in every stage of the product production lifecycle, as well as in fields like law enforcement, healthcare, and entertainment. While there’s a growing need for robotics professionals, there is a limited pool of people with practical experience developing and deploying robotic systems, and attracting them to your team isn’t easy. Partnering with a robotics recruiter helps employers hire highly-skilled robotics talent, even within a tight timeframe or for complex projects.
Structural engineers ensure that the buildings, bridges, tunnels, and other infrastructure that modern societies rely on is safe, stable, and can stand up to whatever people and the environment throw at it. This makes them critical talent for organizations that design, maintain, and retrofit these structures, and creates high demand for professionals who have these niche skills. An experienced recruitment agency like Lock Search Group can help companies find and hire engineers with the right expertise for their roles.
